|Amy Hedrick||Goodbread Name Change|
I'm not sure if you knew this or not, but, the reason behind the name change was due to the stigma of being a Goodbread in the Glynn County area.
Many of the family married close relatives as well as committing petty crimes. The name was "unpopular" and "common" according to Horace and David.
Many of the family changed their name to disassociate themselves from the troublesome part of the family. Not only did Oliver change his name so did his cousins Horace and David B. Goodbread.
Oliver changed his name in 1888; he filed his petition during the September term 1888; I think the notice had to run for several months before the change was done, so it was probably 1889 by the time the change was legal.
Hope this helps.
